Congress blocks Net connection taxation

Well what do you know? Even Congress gets it right once in a while. They've staved off the bloodsucking states for three more years, by overruling the states' desire to tax your internet connection. This will probably cause the states -- always looking for new sources of revenue to spend -- to start taxing you by the inch as your grass grows.

Sickness afoot: New Video Game Recreates Kennedy Assassination

What kind of a sick puke excuse for humans would come out with something as detestable as this? How this could qualify as being called a video "game" is beyond belief.

There are plenty of the Michael Moore-esque mentality in society who feel there are no bounds to common decency or taste. If it feels good, do it. Anything goes. And while you're at it, make as much money as you can with it.

As much as I dislike Ted Kennedy and virtually everything he stands for politically, I feel for him and the Kennedy family, as well as all Americans who must be subjected to this kind of trash in the name of free speech.

It's even more appalling due their timing the release on the 41st anniversary of the assassination.

Absolutely Pathetic.

The only thing worse than the pigs who created this garbage are the sick idiots who will pay ten bucks to download it.

TIME.com: The Folklore of Election '04

Neal Boortz (boortz.com: Nealz Nuze) summarizes this Time article on some of the myths will will undoubtedly prevail through the liberal media over the next four years:

DISPELLING ELECTION MYTHS.
The current issue of Time has a small piece entitled "The Folklore of Election 04". Frankly, I'm a bit surprised Time even printed this piece. It shatters some of the popular excuses offered by Democrats for their loss. Some examples:

Did those pesky Christians show up in overwhelming numbers to defeat the Godless Democrats? Nope. A Democratic pollster shows that the percentage of voters in 2004 who attend church regularly was 42%. That's exactly the same as the percentage who voted in 2000.

Was the election all about moral standards? Some 22% of voters cited morals as a reason for their vote. Iraq and terrorism were cited by 34% of the voters.

The election was stolen. How did Bush win those Florida counties where the majority of the voters are registered Democrats? Oops. It seems that those Florida counties have been voting for Republican presidents for decades.

Oh well ... I suppose the Democrats and the left will keep trying to come up with excuses. Anything is better than admitting that you were simply rejected by the American people.

OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today: Weasel Watch

OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today November 17, 2004

This page always cracks me up. I highly recommend it as part of your daily stops along the 'net.

To wit:

Weasel Watch

Jacques Chirac, the president of France, missed another good opportunity to shut up, the Times of London reports:

Chirac dealt a blow to Tony Blair's attempt to heal the wounds between the US and Europe last night by saying that the Prime Minister had won nothing for supporting the war against Iraq. . . .

M Chirac, speaking to British journalists, including The Times, soon after General Powell's announcement, revealed that he had urged Mr Blair to demand the relaunch of the Middle East peace process in return for backing the war.

"Well, Britain gave its support but I did not see anything in return. I'm not sure it is in the nature of our American friends at the moment to return favours systematically."

Unlike the French, who of course got loads of money in exchange for supporting Saddam Hussein. Whereas Chirac appears to see other countries only in terms of what they can do for him, Blair in his speech stressed common values:

I know one thing. If we were under direct threat, America would be our ally. I know that its people enjoy, as we have seen, a vibrant competitive democracy; and that in America, Hispanics, blacks, Asians and former Europeans live together, worship in their different ways and can rise from the bottom to the top in a manner we could do well to emulate. I didn't agree with Michael Moore's film. But in America he was able to make it and be praised for it. This is called freedom.

Chirac no doubt would respond that the French are free to praise Michael Moore too. Ah well, c'est la vie. We'd just like to point out these numbers (hat tip: blogger Patrick Ruffini):

Bush voters 60,515,255
Total population of France 59,900,268

Oh well, at least Frenchmen (and -women and -children) outnumber Kerry voters by a couple of million or so.

Some Say U.S. No Longer Feels Like Home (a.k.a. Waaaaaa...!)

Well, hell's bells. Go! Quickly! And don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

You just gotta love these self-proclaimed "intellectuals". The "elite" of the Great Blue States. "The schools aren't good enough for my kids." "Television is bad." "We're not safe here." "God is getting just a little too close for comfort." Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...

So go to Italy. Go to France. High tail it for Canada and Costa Rica. And for God's sake stay there. You liberal dweebs have had your way with this country for over 40 years. YOU and your liberal philosophy are what has ruined the schools. It's YOU and your liberal philosophy that fills the TV air waves with such unmitigated junk that now even you can't stand it.

The Silent Majority finally stood up and voted. We didn't just appear. We've been here all along. But we're tolerant to a fault and we've let you get away with it for so long you feel like it's normal now. Well it's not normal. Things haven't been right and normal in this country for a very long time. Maybe we're finally taking a step back toward the right path. One can only hope.

Don't send us a postcard. We won't miss you.

Condescending Dems still don't get it

My sentiments exactly. I couldn't have said it better. I like his term "America's coastal elites", describing the superior tone many on the extreme coasts have taken regarding the "stupid people in the red states". The silent majority all across America's heartland finally stood up and were counted. It's a beautiful thing to see. By the way, don't be fooled. There are only two or three little states way up in the northeast corner that are really all "blue". Take a look at the vote by population or by county and the picture tells a different story. There aren't as many of them as they and the Old Media would have you believe.

Why Americans Hate Democrats: A Dialogue - The unteachable ignorance of the red states.

Why Americans Hate Democrats: A Dialogue - The unteachable ignorance of the red states. By Jane Smiley

So this is what Slate.com has come up with in seeking the insight of "wise liberals"? This is the best they could do?

Jane, you poor girl.

In Jane's world, all conservatives are just a bunch of ignorant, Bible-thumping, unteachable, ass kickin' Rednecks. The Great Unwashed. We have none of the Nuanced Sophisication that elite liberals like her enjoy. Bush, et al, just have us all hoodwinked into blissfully following his treacherous lead into the abyss.

It's ironic that she exempts her own relatives -- who supported Bush -- of being ignorant, but accuses them of being "just greedy and full of classic Republican feelings of superiority."

My, aren't we the superior one?

After seven paragraphs of whining about why she and her fellow "Progressives" are oh so superior to the rest of us, she closes with:

"Progressives have only one course of action now: React quickly to every outrage—red state types love to cheat and intimidate, so we have to assume the worst and call them on it every time. We have to give them more to think about than they can handle—to always appeal to reason and common sense, and the law, even when they can't understand it and don't respond. "

Touche, Jane. The same could be said for the other 59 million Americans who are tired of seeing people like you get away with the "cheating, intimidation and outrages" that have been the fodder of you wacko "progressive" liberals in this country for so many years. The pendulum is finally swinging back and you can't stand it. You've had your way for so long you think it has become a right to behave like you do. The best news in all of this is that, while we "red states" folks may not react quickly (showing we do have a level of tolerance you won't acknowledge), we WILL eventually react when we've finally had enough. You can only push so far until we push back.

Lucky for you, unlike our 'blood thirsty ancestors', at least we don't hunt you down and behead you or shoot you in your sleep. We just vote your ass out of power. Perhaps you'll pause and think about that, if it's not more than you can handle.

Rush Limbaugh:

What's at Stake in This Election

November 1, 2004


Listen to Rush…
(...tell us just what's at stake in this historic election: our survival as a culture)

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

Ladies and gentlemen, I have avoided throughout the whole year declaring this the most important election in our history. I mean, we've had crucial elections before during the Civil War, during World Wars. We had numerous crucial elections during the Cold War, and we've had a divided electorate before. This isn't the first time that we have settled national arguments or even a single national argument over several election cycles. Well, that having been said, this time there is one high stakes issue that makes domestic concerns pale in comparison, and that is the growth of international terrorism -- and this is the prelude to getting into the bin Laden tape that came out on Friday.

International terrorism, which claimed over 800 American lives in what I guess could be called "nuisance" attacks before September 11th, 2001. The growth of international terrorism is a real clear and present danger. I mean, not just to us, but to all of Western Civilization. Only since September 11th has this threat been met with the full projection of American power, and just as important, American political will. Now, despite the claims of one candidate and his party and his allies around the world, we have friends in this struggle. We have friends that include East European nations who were oppressed under communism for almost 60 years and do not want a return to anything like that. We have friends in support from Pacific Rim nations, from nations in Africa and western powers like the Brits and the Aussies who have been steadfast allies throughout.

But the truth of the matter is, America is the dominant power and economy in the world today. We determine the course of freedom throughout the world, not just here in the United States of America. It is something that has to be fought for on a daily basis. It's something that far too many people take for granted. It is something that far too many people think that can be purchased with appeasement of enemies. You can't purchase peace with appeasement. I heard over the weekend, "You can only rent it for a while," but eventually you're going to have to make the buy. You're going to have to purchase peace. You don't get it because you want it. You don't get it because you bury your head in the sand and ignore it. You don't get peace, you don't continue the lifestyle of freedom and liberty that we in this country too often take for granted simply by wanting it more than the other guy.

You have to back it up and you have to defend it, and to defend it you have to recognize when it's under attack, and recognizing when it's under attack takes courage. Recognizing when we are under attack takes wide open eyes, takes honesty. Because once you admit, once you come to the intellectual decision, not emotional, once you come to the intellectual decision to admit, to understand that our way of life, that our freedom that, our daily existence as we've always known it is under attack, once you come to that conclusion, then there's only one option you have, and that is to defend it. We are under attack. The truth is that we have been under attack for many years by the same type of people who think in the same way fanatic Islamists have been attacking freedom and Americans for over 20 years.

It's only in the last three years that we've decided to do something about it. We now find ourselves at a crossroads. Are we going to continue to do something about it or are we going to rent peace for awhile and allow Osama bin Laden at the end of the day tomorrow to go ahead and claim that he and he alone influenced the outcome of the United States elections? Are we going to have a victory for Osama bin Laden tomorrow and give him bragging rights across the Middle East and in the worlds of the left and in the process create a whole new generation of terrorists? Here is a man who is so incapacitated because we've made the decision to fight and defend our freedom that all he can launch as an October Surprise is a tape that appears to come right out of the text of the movie Fahrenheit 9/11.

Osama bin Laden cannot launch an attack on the United States of America. Osama bin Laden can only deliver a tape, and on that tape, bin Laden appeals to the very appeasers in this country who would allow him to gain strength by agreeing with what he says and voting for the man who is being quoted by bin Laden. John Kerry, as much as Michael Moore, was quoted by Osama bin Laden in that video that we all saw Friday and over the weekend, and I have eight audio sound bites here that I'm going to get to later in the program to prove this to you. You can say it came out of Fahrenheit 9/11, but so did the Kerry campaign. Michael Moore is not on the ballot; John Kerry is. Osama bin Laden parroting John Kerry in his tape on Friday. We have a unique responsibility to lead the world in confronting and defeating this evil threat. It's not just ourselves that we are defending, and this is despite nations who oppose us.

Many of these nations that oppose us do not face the threat that we face. Many of the nations that oppose us are doing so in part to protect their financial ties with terrorist nations. We have never in our history relied on others to defend us. We have never in our history turned over our defense to others, either an institution of nations or a single nation. It is they who come to us. Therefore, it is us who must come to us, or we who must come to us. We must rely on ourselves in this battle. For over three decades, 30 years, terrorist organizations grew wealthy, they grew more deadly. Despite increasingly brazen attacks, American deaths were brushed off, and those years are now being referred to by the Democratic presidential candidate as the nuisance of terrorism that he would like to return to, where for three decades American deaths were brushed off.

Returning to the days of appeasement, trying to meet a "global test" of world opinion, ignoring threats from hostile nations and groups is a deadly mistake we simply can't afford to make. Those are the stakes in this race, but it goes beyond simply ignoring threats from hostile nations and groups. It's gotten to the point now where the Democratic Party is actually echoing the words of a man who happily murdered 3,000 Americans on September 11th. The Democrat Party in this country is eager to point to the things bin Laden said and suggest that he is right -- a man who happily murdered 3,000 Americans and is eager to do so over and over and over again! You say, "Rush, I haven't heard the Democrats say that." Oh, you can find it on their websites. You can find people who are going to vote for John Kerry who have said this. You can find people on various Democrat websites who are excited bin Laden said what he said. They're hoping for an Osama smack down of Bush if I may quote one of the things I saw.


But the point is you haven't heard anybody in the Democratic Party renounce this for three years. For the last nine months, you haven't heard anybody in the Kerry campaign, not one voice, not one reasonable, responsible voice from the Democrat Party reject any of the slanderous, libelous, vicious, totally made-up lies and attacks about George W. Bush, as "the next Hitler," as "worse than Saddam." You know the list of things. They have encouraged this thinking. You might say, "Why?" The acquisition of their power is crucial to them. They care more about that than anything else, and they are in their minds because they have a superior attitude over America. They have an arrogant, condescending attitude to those they live with and live near. They believe that it is their entitlement, that they are born to power. It's their right, and that right has been interrupted since 1994 and it's time for them to get it back. And they, in their minds, are permitted to lie for "the common good," as they define it.

They are allowed to attack and cheat and do whatever because in their minds they are doing it for "the common good" so they are not lying; they're not cheating. They're doing what's for "the common good" as they see it from their position of superiority. It's amazing. We have, in this campaign, we have George W. Bush, who has a record, a four-year record. He had to make decisions about life and death and war and peace, and he made them. He made them and he has stuck to them, and there are demonstrable pieces of evidence all over the world of the profound success of those decisions. His opponent has run on platitudes, promises, mysterious plans that you either have to go to his website to read or, when you go there, you'll find that many of them don't even exist.

We have a man who even today, in an AP interview, said something along the lines of, "Well, I'll tell you again what I'm going to do in January. I can't tell you now." John Kerry, on the eve of the election: a man who doesn't want to be pinned down on anything, a man who doesn't want to have to offer a solid position on anything for fear of what that will do to him in the polls. He is free to Monday morning quarterback; he is free to use hindsight. He's taken every decision that has been made and said, "I would have done it different or better or smarter," but never define how. The fact that this race is as close as it is, is what befuddles me when you get right down to it.

In the America I thought I knew, John Kerry wouldn't be within 30 points, nor would anybody in the Democratic Party, using their campaign, their rhetoric, their mean-spirited bile. There's no candidate in their party using this campaign and using the allies they've used that would be within 30 points of George W. Bush. It may not be the America I know, so we have to fight for that, as well as our liberty at the same time -- and that's what it takes, folks. You have to fight, even for the people who are wrong. The people are too blind or too uninformed or too uneducated or too ignorant or too whatever to see the threat that faces them because they refuse to take a look at it. That's the job that we all have. That's what you do when you fight for your country: You fight for everybody in it.
